At the Burduny combined-arms training ground, servicemen of the motorized rifle unit of the combined-arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed in the Republic of Buryatia, began training in throwing hand-held fragmentation grenades RGD-5. More than one thousand grenades will be used up within a month.

Having studied the tactical and technical characteristics and the material part of the RGD-5, as well as safety requirements, the servicemen began throwing offensive grenades at three growth targets at a distance of 25 meters.

The personnel of the formation were involved in fire training classes, who passed the tests for knowledge of safety requirements.

In addition, the military will improve the skills of throwing grenades at targets located in mountainous terrain, which requires a clear definition of the range and taking into account the possibility of their rolling off the slope. For this purpose, trenches and shelters are specially equipped at the test site.
